I’m not sure if other minimalists go through this phase or if it’s just me, but it’s been about 4-5 months now since I minimized my life and I actually think I’ve got down to my bare essentials when it comes to “things” that I need. Of course I could do better with my finances (spend less on eating out lol…really though), but that excitement and thrill of getting rid of stuff and going minimal has kind of passed for me now.
Not that I’m going to go back to my old ways, but it is a little sad to know that that time has come and gone. I could now really start concentrating on my relationships, experiences and other things that truly give my life meaning (which is exciting in itself too!), but it doesn’t change the fact that I am a little sad that there is not much more purging of my “junk.”
